The Design Residency is a support and mentorship program for designers of fashion, textiles, jewellery and makeup with a popup shop located at 72 Oxford St, Darlinghurst NSW 2010

Our founder Lorraine Lock and her husband Simon Lock are big names in the Sydney Fashion Scene and have more than 20 years experience in marketing / PR, Ski Blogger for the Guardian and also a guest lecturer for marketing at the fashion design studio in the Sydney Institute of Tafe at Ultimo NSW. Working with the City of Sydney Council to support young fashion designers in Sydney, NSW, she has setup the Design Residency.

During events such as the Mercedes Benz Australia Fashion Week, you can look through the window of The Design Residency to see local Sydney fashion designers passionately working to style and design their runway models before the space is opened up to the public for sales, direct from the designer from the runway
